lexmoto 125 arrow stalling in rain.

i got a lexmoto 125 arrow from scooter central ( i would NOT recomend them.. it took 4 months to get a owner's manual, i then found out how i'm suposed to run it in. ). it's work great for the 1st year (little teathing problems) but 1 month out of waranty it was raining one day and it just cut out (i was doing about 40mph at the time) next day it carried on as if nothing had happened.

people i have spoken to say rain water is getting in at the spark plug so armed with some petrolium jelly i thought that this was sorted.

but the other day it happened again. i had my farther-in-law   visiting at the time (car machanic) who looked at it while it was playing up. he says the engine and sparke plug is too dry for this.

i'm a former auto electrian so am not brain dead in this area but this is doing my head in. there's nothing ovious. i need my bike for work.

when it happens i can get it to start after about 5min of kick it over, but it only lasts about 600 meters i then coast and start kicking again.

has any1 else had this problem... if so do you know what i can do to correct the problem (we can't aford another bike)

stalling in the rain

Hi, I had a similar problem with my old RS125. What I found was you have 2 spray spark plug, ignition coil and all electrics open to the elements with WD40 prior to riding in the rain. Hope this helps.

cheers, Dave

maybe happy days

i found the other day that an auxilary socket under the seat was well water damaged. i've cleaned it and bagged it up.

i know it's only an auxilary socket but for the 1st time the other day it got me to work when it was chucking it down.

if this is the case i hope this helps with any1 else with similair problems.

maybe the electrics are so tight to same money that this is enough to take out the ignition curcuit.
